    I worked at Ministry of the Attorney General full-time

    Pros

    They were really good at training and development of their employees and they want you to have a good learning experience.

    Cons

    You're not likely to get hired back since all you get is access to the hire back pool. It's also government, so it's a little rigid.

    Advice to Management

    There should definitely be direct hireback since the whole bring em in boot em out thing with articling students seems kinda weird. Then again, training articling students for private firms might just be a public service.

    I worked at Ministry of the Attorney General full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The provincial government gives a lot of opportunities for advancement and courses to improve your skill set. The unions are wonderful and always have your back.

    Cons

    There is a lot of nepotism. At times advancement can be determined by who you know.

    I have been working at Ministry of the Attorney General full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There is tons of security with this job and good benefits -- 13 stat holidays, for instance, and four weeks of vacation after I think it's 7 or 8 years of work. Once you're in, you're in.

    Cons

    Very little reward for going above and beyond -- or even working hard, for that matter. A culture where a lot of people complain.

    I worked at Ministry of the Attorney General full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours to assist with a work/life balance. Minimal supervision. Some really great staff made the days really fun. Benefits are great!

    Cons

    Minimal advancement. Some staff were really difficult to work with and deal with. Some bad apples ruin the bunch, unfortunately. No raises, or minimal percentage of raises.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more approachable and understanding of the needs of your staff. There should be no favoritism.
